There’s a real sense of adventure and exploration about the heavily treated photographic work of French artist Luc Borell, who takes all his photos with camera phone. ‘I take pictures exclusively with the digital camera from my mobile phone, currently a Nokia. I’m not a professional photographer. I find technique dead boring and I have found the simplest, least technical and most practical equipment to be my mobile phone. Apart from that, I’m a ‘cultural engineer’, agent, and art dealer in my spare time. I have always had a passion for art as a global medium. It took me several years to accept that I myself could create and show my work’.
